Office 2016 Available Starting Today (Sept 22)

Sept. 22, 2015

Office 2016 is available starting today, in a graduated roll out. Here is an excerpt from a Zdnet article about that:

The Office 2016 apps are available in 40 languages starting today. Office 365 subscribers can choose to download manually the new Office 2016 apps as part of their subscription starting today. Automatic updates of the Office 2016 apps will begin rolling out to consumer and small business subscribers in October 2015, and to commercial customers early next year. Office 2016 is also available today as a one-time purchase for both PCs and Macs.

What about the Outlook portion of the Office suite?  Well, I’ve been using Outlook 2016 on and off for about a month now, and I like it. It’s not dramatically different from Outlook 2013, most of the improvements are behind the scenes, and in collaboration tools.

    Just upgraded to Office 2016 for Mac and the smart folders for tasks are not working properly. Specifically, when adding a new smart folder, setting the “Within Last” date field will not include tasks created and dated on the current date. This means you will only see tasks with a start date of yesterday and prior – those entered today will not show up until tomorrow. Suggest anyone who can wait to hold off until this is confirmed fixed by Microsoft.
